Substituting with Fairfield County ESC

Thank you for your interest in substituting with the Fairfield County ESC! The FCESC does substitute onboarding for all 8 districts located in the county. These districts include Amanda-Clearcreek, Berne Union, Bloom-Carroll, Fairfield Union, Lancaster City, Liberty Union-Thurston, Pickerington, and Walnut Township. 

Per state law to be a substitute teacher you must hold at least a bachelor’s (4-year) degree, to be a substitute aide you must hold at least a high school diploma. A substitute teacher supersedes a substitute aide, if you need to apply for a license/permit please apply for the one in which you are most eligible.
